Blown away by the wired sound quality – as expected the bluetooth sound is less sharp, so you’ll want to use wired if possible. Having mostly had relatively cheap sennheisers, plus a few headphones in the £60-100 range, i wasn’t expecting to hear much difference from these, just some nicer materials and construction. Not only are these the most comfortable headphones i’ve tried, not only do they have the right level of noise isolation, not only do they feel solid and sturdy and come with a decent protective case, but they sound significantly better than any previous headphones i’ve owned. The difference was not just the balance of bass, mid-range and treble, which sounded spot-on to me, but the quality of that sound – hearing the individual plucking of strings which i hadn’t made out listening with other headphones. I was very tempted to drop a star because the price is substantial compared to what i’m used to, but i’d guess these are rather closer to reference headphones and then the price isn’t unreasonable. Not only that, but you get the option of using them as a bluetooth headset. Here is probably the main stumbling block – they’re the best bluetooth headphones i’ve tried, easily, but if you’re wanting to listen to music and want £250 sound quality, bluetooth just seems to lose a little bit – a slightly harsher treble, less rich bass. The audio is then more comparable with headphones costing quite a bit less.
The unboxing is true luxury, and the physical cutting of ribbon certainly adds to the ceremonial feel. The case is robust and deliciously tactile (whilst the cable and jack holder is ingenious there is something to be said regarding the weakness of velcro. But this is not a practical concern). Build is solid, leather supple, metalwork clean and overall appearance is slick. Extremely comfortable for long wear. Sound quality improves after a few weeks (lower end builds somewhat), but general opinion is one of clarity and well rounded depth. Bluetooth quality and connection experience superb. Only a subtle drop in low end.
Great headphones, not so great customer service. . Firstly, i cannot fault the headphones. For the last 14 months they have been one of, if not the best headphones i have ever owned. Great sound, comfortable to wear (even after extensive usage) and perfectly convenient being bluetooth. However, after 14 months of use mine have stopped working in the left ear. After hearing great things about their supposed ‘six star service’ i emailed the company explaining the situation hoping i could to get them repaired. To my dismay i was curtly told that as they were out of warranty (by 45 days) there was nothing they could do and i would simply have to buy a replacement pair as they do not offer any sort of repair service (even paid repair). In short, after only 14 months of use i am left with a broken pair of headphones and no option but to buy a new pair. Not what i expected from a £220 product or ‘6 star service’, and will seriously rethink about buying from v-moda again.
As a gift for my husband loves these sound excellent. As a gift for my husbandloves these sound excellent.
Style over substance – no aptx / apt-x bluetooth codec support = well behind the tech curve. A friend bought me these in the us – they are ok to good but seem more style over substance:v-moda wireless have no aptx / aptx or aptx-hd bluetooth codec support. – these codecs can give you ‘better than cd’ audio quality over bluetooth- with sennheiser, sony or audio technica you get real high quality audio tech – wired or bluetooth. – check all bluetooth audio devices for aptx + aptx hd codec support , or ldac with sony.
